"“We must recognize that we are more than “homo sapiens’. We are ‘homo vinculum’ -the one who bonds with others. And these bonds are what will save us. They always have.”    -Sue Johnson

I’m Zach Shappley

Providing Marriage & Family Therapy is a privilege and a passion.  I came to this profession through my own life challenges that caused my marriage to struggle. 

I want to help you you move forward in healing your relationships.  I will provide a listening ear, a comfortable setting, and plenty of space for you to discuss what is on your heart. I am humbled when people bravely share their stories of joy and heartbreak with me.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is my primary modality of therapy, of which, I have completed multiple levels of training and am working on additional training for full certification.  I have a Masters in Counseling from Harding School of Theology and I have my temporary Marriage and Family Therapy license from the State of Tennesee (LMFT-TEMP), working on full licensure.

I have been married for 29 years, have three sons, and have been providing help in areas of marriage enrichment for over 13 years.  I am also the Family Minister at Germantown church of Christ, where I  focus on marriage and family enrichment, therapy, and children's ministry.

I am a Christian, and can implement Spiritual resources into the healing environment, if you desire.

Your healing is my number one priority.  Together we will work to make a path for the best outcomes.  Get in touch with me today so we can discuss more about your therapy needs.
